Google is to release an Android SDK for wearable devices.

Speaking at SXSW, Google SVP of Android, apps and Chrome Sundar Pichai said that the kit would begin to develop a “vision for developers of how we see this market working”.

While Google’s only wearable device remains the Google Glass smartglasses, rumours and reports of a Google smartwatch have been developing in the last few weeks.

Pichai said that the Google SDK would provide a system software and API to developers, without restricting what wearable form factors they choose to implement it in.
